Barbara Jack owned and operated Inspirations Inc., in Eagleville PA for close to 20 years. During that time, Inspirations became a center for knowledge and, a source of assistance for all things glass. Classes at Inspirations Inc., included a wide range of skills over the years including; basic glass cutting, leaded construction of stained glass, copper foil construction of stained glass, fusing, slumping, glass painting, mosaics, bead making and more.
At the heart of it all stood the community of artists who remained inspired about glass. Inspirations was more than just a store, it was where these artists came together to share their love of glass, and learn from Barbara and each other.
Barbara’s’ passion for glass ran deep. She was involved with local and national groups to try and preserve the integrity of the industry. Much has happened in Barbara’s life since closing Inspirations in 2010, but her passion for glass has never waned. She has maintained many of the deep friendships cultivated during her years in business. One of these is with JoAnna Vitale.
